Pictures taken...

I've got all the pictures of my new spindles taken and labeled, I just don't have everything listed on the site yet. The spindles are so gorgeous and shiny with the three coats of polyurethane on them, they look like candy. If it wasn't for the fact that I already have too many spindles, I'd want to keep these too. I know I can't keep them and they weren't made for me to keep anyway. I made them to share the beauty of the skill of spinning with other people.

One of the differences in making my spindles is that I want each to be different. I don't want any of my spindles to meet another and say "What the heck? You look like me!" Even the concept spindles like the Teach Me spindles, while all having the numbers on them, each has a different color scheme. I love the rich colors of the paints and the polyurethane brings out such a depth. I've seen all kinds of other spindles and some are very lovely, but my spindles are different from the mass produced spindles that copy the same pattern of spindles over and over. They are made one at a time and each has an inspiration. Feel free to ask the story behind a spindle that interests you if I forget to give its story online.

I'll try to update again when the rest of the spindles are listed.
